Abstract/Contents:"Increasingly strict bans on herbicide use on amenity turf areas require innovative management approaches to maintain the attractiveness and usability of turf swards. Festuca spp. species showed allelopathic potential against some weeds and additional screening for growth interference of Festuca spp. cultivars against weeds is needed. The aim of this study was to investigate the growth inhibiting effects of Festuca spp. species, including Chewing's fescue [Festuca rubra ssp. commutata (Thuill.) Nyman], slender creeping red fescue [Festuca rubra trichophylla (Ducros ex Gaudin) K. Richter], strong creeping red fescue (Festuca rubra L. subsp. rubra), hard fescue [Festuca trachyphylla (Hack.) Krajina] and tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) on common turf weeds such as clover (Trifolium repens L.), daisy (Bellis perennis L.) and yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.). Each fescue cultivar was grown on water agar and placed in a growth chamber. After 13 days, 20 seeds of either clover, yarrow or daisy were added. Every four days weed germination was recorded and after 28 days biomass of grasses and weed root, shoot, and total length were measured. When data were averaged over cultivars, final germination of clover was reduced 10% by tall fescue and 9% by Chewing's fescue species (P>0.05). Root length of clover and yarrow were reduced by all fescue species. The presence of tall fescue reduced root growth of clover by 64.2% (p< 0.0001) and of yarrow by 89.2% (p<0.0001). More research is needed to determine if results are based on allelopathy or are the result of interference or competition effects."
